Royal Doulton Toilet Set Shapes

Royal Doulton Mafair Sponge Bowl 

Royal Doulton produced at least thirteen different styles of toilet set. These are:-

Aldwych, Arcadia, Argosy, Aubrey, Duke, Flagon, Lagoon,

Lowther, Mayfair, Pomona, Octagon, Semour & Sunstar

 

Toilet sets are difficult to come by; from time to time when such items do come available they are generally in quite poor condition. I cannot be absolutely sure why, but I would hazard as a guess that it is because they were far from glamorous. I cannot be sure when toilet sets went out of fashion, but I would expect there would have been very little call for them by the early 1930’s.

Even in there hay day these Toilet Sets would have only been purchased by the wealthy or those who were upwardly mobile. Of course once such people were hooked up to modern plumbing they would have been quick to discard the toilet sets no matter how beautiful they were. The only use the larger items could have had was as elaborate under trays for pot plants. The rarest of the toilet set items is of course the slops bucket, these were large cumbersome and hard to store – I would go so far as to say that Slops buckets are now positively rare. 

 

Mayfair Toilet Set 

We have identified seven different items which go into a complete Mayfair Toilet set, we believe we have them all, but we are open to debate on this point.
